The Weather Sucks, But Gay People Can Get Married!
Today, Maine’s governor signed gay marriage into law, which now leaves New Hampshire and Rhode Island as the only two New England states that haven’t legalized gay marriage. New Hampshire’s legislature is close to passing such a bill, and Rhode Island, while lagging behind, is at least debating the topic in their legislature.
I don’t have any original commentary to add here. It is astounding to watch our system work on the side of what’s right as opposed to on the side of what’s bigoted–and you’ll never be able to convince me that the argument against gay marriage is rooted in anything other than bigotry.
It’s been raining for the last couple days here, but the sun came out a couple hours ago and we might salvage a nice spring day yet–something that, in New England, is harder to come by than a gay married couple.
